Learning About MP 1.2.0 beta

If you are 'testing' the new release of MediaPortal (MP) 1.2.0 beta, now you can learn about all the new features and how to use them and test them thoroughly.

For the first time in MP history, testers have access to current documentation on all the changes and new features.

This was a new initiative for 1.2.0 beta, and our first attempt.  We hope to improve the process even more in future. 

Many thanks to all those who have contributed! It was a huge undertaking by all the Team as well as many users.

Read on for a summary of the additions and changes.  These do not include the many changes behind the scenes to improve performance and existing features which do not change the user interface.

What's New in Wiki

You can view the Wiki Documentation for 1.2.0 beta on the Wiki What's New page. There is a table that lists every page in the main Wiki that has been updated for 1.2.0 beta.  Just select 'beta' from the Show box for the table.

Note that there are many, many additional changes documented to assist all those who contribute extensions and translations:

 We have attempted to document every development change to aid our extension developers.

Summary of Changes

Here is a quick summary of the Wiki changes for 1.2.0 beta.

Note:  These are in addition to all the 1.2.0 alpha features already reported.

The above list is not exhaustive, there are additional minor changes, like a Default button for resetting Picture, Music and Video extensions back to the original defaults.  However, as you may have noticed, when you browse the Wiki, the changes for 1.2.0 beta are all clearly marked.

Don't forget, the Help button in every Configuration screen will always take you to the related Wiki page for help on setting up the options available on that screen. You can always print out the Wiki page(s) to use them when configuring systems without an internet connection.

Have fun, and don't forget to eat and sleep! Cool

Support MediaPortal!

The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.
